Johnny Stannard has returned from New York where he has been the past year, to take charge of J. L. Gatesís store in order that the latter may devote his time to the banking business. Johnny looks fresh and happy and seems to be nearly as glad of his return as the balance of us. Mr. H. D. Eyerly, who has been in the store for some time past, will now go to looking after his saw mills, of which he has two.

Some Old Clark County History

As Told by Her Pioneers

 

Neillsvilleís Grand Old Xmas Tree.

 

Near the corner of Court and Fifth Streets in front of the old John Stannard residence stands an old pine tree. This tree was planted in 1862 by Wm. Berry. At the old settlers party held in this city, some years ago, measurements were made and recorded. The tree has shown rather a remarkable growth and bids fair to live to be a venerable old monarch of that part of town.
